VAN ZWEDEN CONDUCTS MENDELSSOHN

New York Philharmonic Igor Levit, piano - Christopher Martin, trumpet
Orchestral Series
Friday, July 19, 2024 at 6pm Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater

Van Zweden returns to lead the Philharmonic in two contrasting Russian works: Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 1 and Shostakovich’s Concerto in C minor for Piano, Trumpet and Strings, featuring Principal Trumpet Christopher Martin and the Bravo! Vail debut of pianist Igor Levit. Concluding the program is Mendelssohn’s cherished Symphony No. 3.

Did you know?

Mendelssohn’s Scottish Symphony, inspired a visit to that land, sounds ever-so-Scottish to us, but Robert Schumann, wearing his critic’s hat, somehow got this confused with Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony and found the Scottish to harbor “melodies sung in lovely Italy.” Oops.
